article imageWatch 'The Ultimate Anti-Gay Marriage Ad' parody

By JohnThomas Didymus     Mar 5, 2013 in Internet
Watch this satirical video that spoofs people obsessed with notions that legalizing gay marriage will somehow bring about the end of the world.
The video parodies people "whose lives are ruined whenever other people are treated equally." It shows gay marriage opponents obsessing over how gay marriage will spark off the collapse of "God-ordained" heterosexual union and the ruin of civilization itself.
Of course, if you subscribe to the attitudes that inform the comic hyperboles typical of anti-gay rhetoric you are likely to miss the intended satire and take the message at face-value. And it seems that is the intention of the makers of the video, to spoof anti-gay ranters by reflecting their facile arguments back at them and have them nodding in solemn agreement with a veiled caricature of their attitudes.
A wife worries she will have to abandon her heterosexual marriage and marry a lesbian. A husband rants about gay conspiracy to destroy civilization. A child fears that legalizing gay marriage will turn her parents against her.
The spoof applies generally to people who somehow manage to drive themselves to a position in which they become firmly convinced that equal opportunity for others impinges on the security of their own lives
